In the world of energy healing, you will hear the word Muscle Testing quite a bit, it is synonymous with the term Applied Kinesiology (AK). "The theory of AK was developed by George Goodheart, Jr., a Michigan Chiropractor who began to write and lecture about his ideas in 1964." Dr. Andrew Weil states that Applied Kinesiology which is also known as muscle strength testing, is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the belief that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands..." An Emotion Code Practitioner uses muscle testing to discover which emotions may need to be released that may be causing a physical or emotional disturbance in the body. The Emotion Code Practitioner does not replace the advice of your physician or your normal medical treatments or medications. She is not a physician and will not diagnose or prescribe medicine or medical treatments. The Emotion Code is one tool that can be used to support traditional health care.
